The Oak Church is working together with Mosaic Church, Leeds, and the Catalyst Network. We believe in clear submitted leadership. When the Bible talks about church leadership it is always submitted to God, servant-hearted, devoted, character driven and Jesus focused. There are many leaders at The Oak leading in various ministries but the whole team is led by the Senior Leadership Team - a team made up of leaders and elders (the role of the elders is to hold the senior leadership team accountable to the doctrine and direction of the church according to scripture).
The Senior Leadership team is made up of men and women submitted to Jesus, building His church and serving the world.
